Hi Max,

I think it is hard to given a way for calculating hardware requirement on
the fly. If you have any existing server machine, suggest you test your web
application on it(concurrent load test). You can record those statistics
such as:

average page response time, CPU usage, memory usage, throughput...

then, you can try measure the hardware requirement by multiple the existing
server's hardware with difference between the above performance results and
your expected result.

Hello We are upgrading our DB server to a new machine and there is a heated debate about what spec machine to use. We have on this server a 15 GB DB that handled around 2-3 million transactions / day, 50% updates and 50& reads roughly, the main goal since it is used by an interactive end user application is speed for updates and reads, it does not need to do any heavy calculations at all during daytime, at nighttime it does a lot of...

I am planning to build a server to be used as a SQL Server and web server. Right now I can only use a single box for both. I have read some threads were dual processors are having problems with some parallel queries and the suggestions of having sql server use a single CPU. My budget is limited so I am debating whether to get 2.6G dual xeon 533FSB or dual P4 800FSB (DRR@ ram) or stick with a speedy single cpu. If I get a dual cpu...

hey guys--i need some expert advice! we have a Dell PE 2650 with 2GHz and 2MB RAM with 2000 Server. on it we have about 6 MSSQL DB's. a couple of the DB's are the back-end for a decent sized web app (5-10 users on average, 20 users at most). many times, the cpu skyrockets on our db server when using the web app. sometimes things timeout, other times not. at this time, upgrading the hardware is not an option. aside from increasing the...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
